Not sure if this is by design or not, but was quite surprised when I got my WDTV yesterday that I can't just press play on a folder and have it play the contents of that folder.

I have a lot of music in one large playlist but I don't want to have to go into the folder and choose a track, I just want to see the folder, Marks Music, and click play and it chooses a random track and then plays.

Hopefully others will agree and WD listen! :o)

Same boat.  I've added it as a feature request over at WD.  Also for movies would be good.  I have my daughters TV shows collection (animations mostly) and want to play the whole folder.

I agree. This is also a common and very useful feature on other media players.

Fully agree. My pictures are organized by year then month. Sometimes I would like to randomly play anything from a year and can not do that :-(

I agree that this would be a useful feature. I would also add that I'd like to be able to press play for a genre/artist/etc. I just got the WDTV the other day and am VERY disappointed that I can't play all music by an artist or all music within a single genre.
